Lifeboats are an impor tant component of safety measures for the passengers and crew of
floating vessels and offshore platforms. They need to be designed so that people on
board can be evacuated safely. This requires that: the lifeboat is not damaged during

own propulsion system is started; and the accelerations experienced by occupants do not
exceed a cer tain level over a certain period of time.
